GOP sets schedule to pick new LD1 candidate

First district Republicans have set a deadline of 4:30 PM on Friday for Assembly candidates to file a letter of intent to seek the GOP nomination to take Frank Conrad's place on the ticket. Conrad has dropped out of the race to challenge incumbents Nelson Albano (D-Vineland) and Matthew Milam (D-Vineland). Republican County Committee members will vote on a replacement candidate by 4:30 PM on Wednesday, July 1. So far, only Ocean City GOP Municipal Chairman John McCann has entered the race, and sources say he has commitments for a huge block of votes.
